Oracle Solaris Cluster and Oracle GoldenGate

Krishna Murthy
Senior Manager, Software Development



With Oracle Solaris Cluster we provide an agent for Oracle
GoldenGate. This agent provides high availability for the GoldenGate application.  With the Oracle Solaris Cluster GoldenGate
agent you can configure the GoldenGate software to replicate
databases controlled by Oracle Solaris Cluster. The replication
partner can be located either on a cluster node of the same cluster,
on a different cluster, or a non clustered system. The Oracle Solaris
Cluster agent for GoldenGate does not impose any restriction on the
possible Oracle GoldenGate replication topologies, so there is no
difference in regards of Oracle GoldenGate replication topologies
between a clustered and a non clustered system.

With this new agent you can integrate Oracle
GoldenGate together with the replication source or replication target
database in Oracle Solaris Cluster. To accomplish this you must make
the database highly available using an Oracle Solaris Cluster agent
for your database. If no agent is available for this database you can
easily create one using the Generic Data Service Version 2 shipped by
Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.2.

The Oracle Solaris Cluster agent for GoldenGate can
be configured in failover and multiple master configurations. Beside
the obvious shared storage topologies for failover configurations,
you can implement shared nothing topologies with multiple master
configurations, if the Oracle GoldenGate replication satisfies your

The documentation for the GoldenGate agent is
